IoT Improves Sports Data Tracking and Analytics
Athletes, coaches and sports companies are incorporating the Internet of Things into training and competition equipment to enhance player performance. Data analytics facilitated by connected devices has become a major tool for players across all sports, offering teams and individuals critical insights to improve their competitive edge. In an interview in January of this year, Mounir Zok, the U.S. Olympic Committee’s biomedical engineer, addressed the growing interest in IoT as a way to help Olympic athletes maximize their potential. “I call it the 1 percent question,” Zok told Bloomberg News. “Olympic events typically come down to a 1 percent advantage. So what’s the one question that, if we can provide an answer, will give our athletes that 1 percent edge?” While examples of successful technology integration are easy to spot in mainstream sports like baseball, football and basketball, the power of data is recognized as a powerful tool in a variety of sports.
